Mismatched Monday: Festive Sparkles

In addition to traditional red and green, jewel-tones are always popular this time of year.  Since I just purchased an amethyst sweater and sequined top I thought I'd make some earrings to wear with them.  These are perfect for right now AND for New Year's!
Copper disk charms: Metal Me This
Lampwork beads: Molten Mayhem
Niobium findings & earwires: The Odyssey and Bead Expressions
Crystals: Eureka Crystal Beads
Chain: Michaels
I didn't want the earrings to be 100% purple because I thought that would be too matchy matchy.  We all know I don't do matchy matchy.  Instead, I chose another color as the main focus and then added just a hint of purple with Jan's lampwork.
What festive colors will you be wearing this holiday season?
